A couple weeks ago, I started having a lot of pain in my left (non-bionic) knee.  Eventually it reached the point that I actually went to see a doctor.  Two visits, x-rays, and an MRI later, I have a torn meniscus.  The way to fix that is to 'scope it and snip the torn part off.  Pretty basic as surgery goes.

My surgery date is set for March 3rd.  I should be back at work the following Monday and feeling pretty normal within a couple weeks.  I'm pleased at this date since the first offer was March 17th!

I already have a handicapped parking tag and supply of Percocet, though I haven't needed the pain meds--they're for the couple days after the procedure.  I'm using a cane to minimize the extra strain on my various parts, but it isn't too bad.  It's nothing compared to what I went through with the other leg.

Best of luck with the procedure, and heal up fast.

You'll be healing just as I get broken.

I'm glad the docs figured it out and that it's "fixable."
